I'm wondering how this is powered? 10kW @ 100% efficiency would need 83.33 amps at 120 volts; 41.67 at 240 volts.

Plus the 1500 watt heater......

I wonder if this one "goes to eleven"?

Typo the comma should be a decimal point

Figured that. Commas and periods are used differently in different languages. Was funny to see it that way though.

I'd accept that answer were it not for the three significant figures to the right of the comma/decimal point.

What manufacturer ever specified power output to the thousandth of a watt?

Nah, just pure BS for the uninformed.

But hey, I've been wrong in the past. So that's not likely to change!

Well, maybe it was rating of the energy content of the plastic if it were thrown into a real fireplace or furnace.

Well, as seen on the Wendy Williams show. Looks like there's a whole collection.
